Does God want you to use your imagination? Are Christians to turn off their imaginative, creative side when they become mature believers? The answers may surprise you!
The Power of Imagination reveals the part of spiritual life that is often shunned or closeted away because it may seem New Age or too unconventional. On the contrary, when believers use their imaginations to see beyond current circumstances into the realm where God paints pictures in their minds, healings are commonplace, goals are accomplished, dreams come true, and victories are celebrated!
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit (2 Corinthians 3:14-18).
You can develop the ability to see as God sees. You can see the future that He planned for you before you were born. Through the power of your God-given imagination, nothing is impossible-no problem too big, no relationship too broken.
This exciting new way of living is thoughtfully and biblically presented in a refreshing and empowering way that will keep you imagining for years to come. Topics include:
- How to Develop a Godly Imagination
- Supernatural Vision
- Living from the Inside Out
- Discerning Vain Imaginations
- Seeing the Unseen
- Deep Calls Unto Deep
A special chapter is devoted to healing the orphan spirit that can keep people from becoming all God intended for them-walls are identified and torn down, replaced with a beacon of beauty and light shining throughout the spirit, body, and soul. Just imagine!

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Kerry Kirkwood removes the mystery and confusion prevalent in the minds of many evangelicals today regarding the principle of “imagination” as a source of spiritual power in a Biblical context in his book “The Power of the Imagination.” Kirkwood skillfully weaves a pattern of inspiration, information, and challenge through a practical progression of step by step instructions on how to strengthen and develop Godly imagination in a balanced Biblical way. He puts an emphasis on using the power of magnification and the power of love to see things through the eyes of God. Kirkwood maintains that everything in scripture revolves around God’s love as administered and imparted by the Holy Spirit. Using an emphasis on a focus on potential, graphic impressions, imaginative communication, Kerry describes the excitement which follows when we see our plans become reality, once we have dared to believe. These experiences testify to the creative ability we have to change our circumstances. Terry also explores the concepts of dreams as a tool for revealing images of destiny, the creative imagination of childhood, and the precise gift of prophecy using real life experiences and Biblical examples to illustrate the scriptural principles of the power of the imagination as the result of an overshadowing of the Holy Spirit. Kerry’s writing goes beyond theoretical, is validated scripturally, and evidenced experientially. A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes.
Still reading this book, but have found it to be very enlightening and spiritually uplifting to read.
